Dear Jan: The 8th annual HAVE A HEART DINNER was a great success, thanks to the wonderful support we received from you. The wonderful LEAFS caricature was instrumental in making the dinner a tremendous success. The display and talk around the caricature added great interest and excitement to the dinner and various auctions. The dinner & auctions combined raised over $120,000. This is our highest amount ever. Over the past eight years, the dinner has raised over $500,000, for a variety of organizations assisting women and children. All proceeds from the dinner will benefit Redwood Shelter and the YMCA Women's Shelter. Both organizations provide emergency shelter to women and children escaping family violence. With the monies generated this year, Redwood Shelter is building a secure playground for the children who live there and the YMCA Woman's Shelter is expanding a ten-week parenting course and developing an Art and Play therapy counselling course. Your work is terrific Jan, and I am so happy that we were able to "show it off" at the Have A Heart Dinner. I hope we can work together again on other projects. Many of the players, their wives and girlfriends mentioned how much they liked the caricature; I wouldn't be surprised if you hear from them. They were all delighted with your representation - ears and all! On behalf of the Toronto Maple Leafs, their wives and girlfriends and The Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club, thank you for your support of the Have A Heart Dinner. Your support was instrumental in making the Have A Heart Dinner a success for the women and children of Redwood and the YMCA Women's Shelter. Best regards, Lynda Dryden

Dear Jan: I want to thank you so much for helping to create a very special evening of entertainment for my clients and their guests at the Chateau des Charmes.

I recently had the pleasure of securing the services of Jan Walsh for a high-profile corporate awards gala in November where she entertained, enlightened and amazed some 1,500 guests as a caricaturist. Ms. Walsh's artistic and interpretive skills truly amazed and amused the participating guests and I was thrilled to receive numerous phone calls and emails the following day from the company's event organizers stating their appreciation and gratitude for such an innovative form of entertainment. I have no hesitation in recommending Ms. Walsh to any potential client wishing to create an exciting and novel occasion. Please feel free to call or email should you wish further confirmation of Ms. Walsh's professional ability. Glenda J. Fordham, Fordham & Associates, Entertainment Publicity & Promotions

Dear Jan: I want to thank you personally for your considerable contribution towards making our All Staff day at the Radisson Hotel, the success that it was. This day is particularly important in our team-building efforts, and your caricature drawings were clearly a popular event. The length of the staff line-up to have "portraits" sketched, the good humor they evoked, and the fact that they are now displayed all over the office are clear indications of your success and ability. Thank you for joining as and adding to our enjoyment of the afternoon. It made a great deal of difference to us all. Bruce M. MacMillan, President and CEO, Tourism Toronto, Toronto Convention & Visitors Association
